Last night the hosts fought the fun of the 2020 President's hopeful Beto R&K for his use of Spanish during Wednesday's democratic primary debate, even comparing him to an "embarrassing father at a Mexican restaurant."
Rourke, who was a beloved of the liberal media early in the process, spoke long in Spanish about the welfare of businesses, which led to a now-viral look from late Cory Booker. The former congressman from El Paso, Texas, was very mocked at social media to wipe out NBC's Savannah Guthrie's first question in two languages - but the jokes did not stop when the debate ended.

"I mean, I knew he wanted to destroy his Spanish, I didn't know it would be so fast. Remember Beto, you only have one ball, so don't fire until you see their BANG's white," shot Meyers before he also pointed to Booker's face.
"Now you can think it's the face of a guy thinking" I can't believe you're talking Spanish, "but it's actually a face that thinks:" Oh man, it should I do, "said Meyers before playing a clip of Booker and answering a question in Spanish later on the debate.
